Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and 12.04 LTS Users Get New Kernel Updates with Security Fixes

There are fixes for an information leak in Linux kernel’s Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS) implementation, a heap-based buffer overflow in the USB HID driver, a flaw in the TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) implementation, a race condition in the MIC VOP driver, and some issues with PowerPC platforms. As expected, Canonical urges all users of the Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) operating systems, as well as any supported derivative to update their systems to linux-image-3.13.0-95 (3.13.0-95.142) and linux-image-3.2.0-109 (3.2.0-109.150) as soon as possible.
